Gaudeamus

Scholam concinamus nostram
Maidstonensi urbe impostam,
Rege Eduardo, ante hos tam
Longos annos conditam.
Maidstonenses gaudeamus
Laudibus, et efferamus
Scholam nostram, quae oramus
Sempiterna floreat.
Forsan olim meminisse
Nos juvabit, et vixisse
Dignos illis quos fuisse
Gloriamur socios.
Maidstonenses gaudeamus
Laudibus, et efferamus
Scholam nostram, quae oramus
Sempiterna floreat.
